    Just got back from a "candy Store" extraordanaire of exotic cars in a most beautiful facility.27,00 sq ft inhabited by a gorgeous AM DB9,gallardo,Stryker, Panoz and a panopoly of exotics too numerous to count.
    Go have a look BUT leave your checkbook at home!

    I've been there twice--the place is a palace. F1 car on the wall, open service bays--even a lift in the service writing area. Pool table/lounge upstairs, conference rooms for hosting local car clubs.

    They invested a ton of money in this place--they are going to have to move a lot of metal to pay for it. I just don't see how it pencils out when Spyker and Panoz are your only new car line.

    Time will tell--but it is definitely worth a visit.

    Hmmm - sounds like it would be a great place for a club event. Maybe a tech session or a good place to have a speaker. What do you guys think?

    Will,
    Speak to the GM-Matt Crandall
    What I meant by "leave your checkbook home" is that if you are the impulsive type the temptations abound.

    I need to get down there and check it out. Any vintage stuff, or all late-model?

    Didn't go over the inventory carefully but saw a 300SL gullwing.

    Almost everything I saw was late model. One late '80's 911, one 348 spider, one Buick Grand National (with plush velour seats)--nothing in the early 911, early 3x8, 512bb, etc. range.

    It sounds like a very cool place. I'm definitely have to swing on in there the next time I'm in down in the area.

    Maybe they are looking to be the Oregon version of "Park Place Ltd" which is in Bellevue,WA. http://www.parkplaceltd.com/

    Nice big beautiful showroom with lots of high end consignment cars, along with their own exotic new car lines.

    What a dealership!!!! I just got back and must say it is the nicest dealership I have ever been too. Must be $5,000,000 plus invested. They actually have showers in the restroom, serve you espresso when you walk in. Very classy establishment.
    The cars are unbelievable as well! Lambo's Lotus, Ferrari's, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Austins (sp), Bently, ect. They are set up to do mods (aftermarket items) to our cars that factory dealers wont do. Test pipes, race set up ect.
    The owners and sales people are very knowledgable and been in the industry for many years. Owners and salespeople are all former and or existing racers.

    Two Big thumbs up,

    Mike

    ....Mike, I would have loved to go too! I just got back from Georgia on Saturday. I had'nt shaken the cobwebs out by sunday and this is the first time I've seen this post. :( Would go another time if you were interested. Just trying to catch up on things right now . Also doing me 2-weeks Army Reserve duty right now. Then on the 29th I go in for knee surgery. That will put me out for a while. Should be good by mid May? At least I hope anyway. Maybe the weather will be better by then too.

    There is nothing like a Ferrari, there never has been and never will be!
